Re: Race(s) and You

I sort of like humans, halflings and golems.

Re: Max level for ECL races

Personally, I think that after reading this, we could simply expand the ECL to all races or classes to level the playing field for future characters and races. It may be easier than removing the current ecl or tweaking it.

Re: Arrow retrieval

In some games like Skyrim, you have a small percentage of a chance of recovering your arrows from corpses when they are used. In a tabletop d&d game you may start out with a certain amount of arrows in your inventory that you use up as you do combat. You don't get those back unless you make an attem...

Re: Halls of Justice Entry

Easiest thing to do is make the guard on the gate surrender a key to any paladin that requests it.

I'd find that picture of Harroghty more believable with a moustache :) Either way, voted.

Re: Purpose of food clock?

I'm out. It's bad enough that I have to spend half of my time thinking about how to navigate the twisted maze that is Text-Only Waterdeep. When the other half is spent thinking about the food clock and coin remaining to buy said food then the game is no longer about roleplay and adventuring. I didn...

Re: Coded vs. For-Show Storerooms?

Some of the older temples have coded storerooms, but for the most part I don't think they work or they are blocked off by old hero coding that used to have faith managers and guild heroes at lv 51. I think the only working area storerooms are either blocked by mobiles or are simply uncoded spaces se...

The published statement of the game is on the home page of the mud as far as I can tell. It is also detailed on the Mud connector entry.

Re: Purpose of food clock?

The current food system is better than the older one we had. That system required you to eat regularly at a greater rate. The current one requires you to eat liberally now and then.

Re: Dark races and boredom

You don't have to build areas, you can design them, meaning item descriptions, questlines, room descriptions and mobiles etc. Then you find a builder in game interested and they build it. Personally though, I've seen a few things added to the Underdark in the last few months, all good areas for solo...

Re: Penalties for Underdark races on the surface

Are you offering to code the mechanics for this though? My goal is to present a solution that can be accomplished immediately. If you know the afflictions required why not play at being affected by them?

Re: Penalties for Underdark races on the surface

Isn't all this stuff you can rp and smote? Taking into account the affects of not having daylight adaptation could be rp'd even though you need to have it by code to go to the surface, you can rp that you begin to feel the affects wearing thin.

Re: Corpse Sense

What about characters posting to the note board in game ic that they would prefer not to be sent to the conservatory if found? They can post their desc too if they are not widely known.

I suppose raising this thread from the undead is a bit untimely, but here goes: My recent foray into leatherworking: - It takes multiple skins to make anything, and the code does not take into account realistic elements like size. For example it takes a fair amount of elephant hides to craft a small...

Re: Moving Polymorph to a Lower Level for Druids

One thing to consider is that there was a huge issue with players abusing the shapes the code allowed to solo areas and pvp combat situations when the previous forms of polymorph and shape change existed. One of the problems being that creatures are now hard coded to racial types with abilities. Thi...

Re: PvP Rules Clarification

Personally I think its terrible form to take a character's symbol off their remains because I think the symbol is the most potent item of faith on their person and therefore the one likeliest to be protected by divine intervention. But that is my personal opinion on that matter. Its probably not a b...
